Memphis Storm

I was leaving the beer line
When she bumped into me †
Had one in each hand † †
Spilling Bud Light on her Def Leppard tee † †
I said excuse me ma'am † †
Can I buy you a beer † †
She said that would be nice † †
But that's not why I'm here † †
As she grabbed me by the hand † †
† †
Now She blew me away † †
Like a Memphis storm in May † †
We danced in the rain † †
While the band played on † †
We slipped in the mud † †
Sat there for a while † †
I brushed her hair back † †
She kissed me with that Georgia smile † †
† †  
I was chillin' in a beach chair † †
As the sun came out † †
Smoke filled the air † †
While she danced in that Memphis mud † †
The band played their last song † †
I smiled and said, how about that beer † †
She said that would be nice † †
But that's not why I'm here † †  
As she grabbed me by the hand † †
† †  
Now She blew me away † †
Like a Memphis storm in May † †
Back in her room † †
We washed the mud from each other † †
The water wasn't the only thing hot that night † †
We made love and held each other for a while † †
Then I brushed her hair back † †
She kissed me goodnight with that Georgia smile † †
† †  
We were sitting by the fountain † †  
As those ducks came in † †  
I could see it in her eye † †  
So I said goodbye † †  
She leaned in and whispered † †  
That's not why I'm here † †  
She let go of my hand, gave me that Georgia smile † †  
She said donít worry, Iíll be back next year † †  
As I watched her walk away... † †  
All I could think about... † †
How she... † †
† †  
She blew me away † †  
Like a Memphis storm in May † †  
We danced in the rain † †  
While the band played on † †  
We slipped in the mud † †  
Sat there for awhile † †  
Then I brushed her hair back † †  
She kissed me with that Georgia smile
